WHY RUN FOR CITY COUNCIL:
Scott is running for City Council because he loves this City. He cares about the families and businesses in his district. Scott sees that our City is losing residents, and that decline comes directly from neighborhoods being ignored. He's prepared to face these challenges head-on. Scott knows that our district needs its next voice on the council to be one that represents the citizens, not one that appeases special interests or the insiders of city hall. I’m ready to bring the voices of our district together, prepare our city to tackle the challenges we’re facing, and get the job done.
